I am not sure where January went, but it's February, they say.
January is always a month of new beginnings, goals, journeys....ours was a month of illnesses.
You win some, you lose some. Here's to February being healthier!
Granted, our illnesses were MILD, and I am lucky that we are all (generally) healthy, but it sure did come all at once!
January 11, I got sick with a generic cold...sneezing, runny nose, dry throat, etc.
January 15, Louise got it and was blowing bubbles out of her nose half the size of her face.
Then Chad got a touch of it.
January 22, Cam puked (as did 99% of his preschool room).
January 26, I had surgery. (More on that later - I am totally fine!)
Then Chad was nauseous for a few days.
January 29, Louise puked.
And here we are.
This past month, I didn't reach any of my goals, but I did try. I blame the illnesses on not attending church and the illnesses on not cutting back on alcohol. :) The rest was pure laziness (and maybe the illnesses)! ;)
We did manage to enter into society a few times....During January, we went to Disney on Ice, watched Making a Murderer, celebrated my Mom's birthday, watched the Patriots lose in the AFC Championship, played in the snow, went to the Children's Museum and Louise popped through her third tooth. Ouch.
Disney on Ice...."Woody" was in heaven!
Sick baby...Cam thought it was awesome that he could sleep on the floor after he puked!
Teething babies are so pitifiul :(
Celebrating Mom's birthday
This past weekend, Chad and I took Cam to the Children's Museum without Louise, which was like the best day ever! I didn't take too many pictures (trying to be more present instead of on my phone), but this dorky little boy had the time of his life! We've been going since he was just over a year old, and it's so cool to see how much he can do now, compared to then!

driving the firetruck
He spent so much time "fixing" the car...it totally surprised me!
And something for your viewing pleasure...
I love this picture for two reasons.
1) Cameron always wears our shoes around the house, so here he is in Chad's size 11 Bean boots, watching cartoons.
2) Whenever I put pajama pants on him, I purposely pull them up really high, and he never pulls them down, so I just quietly giggle to myself. Is that mean? Please say no.
Enough of a random update...I'm here and alive and fairly healthy, but I have had zero time to get anything into writing. Or done at my house. I am excited for February - a new workout routine, a new eating style, Valentine's Day and a week-long vacation from work. No plans, but that's a-ok with me!
Happy Monday! Have a great week!!
